Reunion Weekend 2020
We have made the difficult decision to postpone this year's 50-Year Reunion until 2021.
Unfortunately, we don't see a way to follow health and safety guidelines and preserve the spirit and fun of a gathering like this. So we've decided to combine the reunions of the classes of 1970 and 1971 and have a grand old time in 2021! It's a little unconventional, but we know it will be a memorable and amazing event! We can't wait to see you there.
If you have already purchased an event ticket, our accounting team is working on issuing full refunds. We'll follow up with details about the combined reunion next spring. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. We’re sure going to miss you this year!
